I came to BOSS because:
BOSS has a deep heritage in the wilderness skills community and operates in a stunning backcountry setting. I wanted to be part of that heritage. I’m always looking for meaningful experiences that allow me to connect with my past and prepare me for the future. BOSS does exactly this, and much more.
I teach at BOSS because:
I teach at BOSS to draw from the deep well of knowledge of my co-instructors and for the opportunity to travel across a unique wilderness landscape. I have met so many great people, both students and instructors, over the years that keep me coming back to this remote corner of Utah.
